With the success of TV shows like Netflix’s F1: Drive To Survive, there has never been as much sporting content available at our fingertips. In fact, such has been the success of the motor-racing blockbuster that a record number of Americans tuned in to watch the recent Bahrain Grand Prix. The race was won by Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc, who BetVictor make the favourite to win the World Championship this year, and was watched by 1.35m viewers on ESPN, the most viewers since Formula 1 returned to American TV sets in 2018.
All Or Nothing – Amazon Prime
Amazon Prime’s epic docuseries allows fans to glimpse behind the curtain and look inside some of the greatest sports teams on the planet. And don’t worry, there’s something for everyone, no matter which side of the Atlantic you’re on. With thirteen different seasons spread across four different sports: American Football, Soccer, Rugby and Ice Hockey – it’s impossible to not be satisfied. And the critics were exactly that with the 2020 instalment following Tottenham Hotspur. Box office manager Jose Mourinho ensured that the show received a rating of 4.8 out of 5.
The Last Dance – Netflix
Michael Jordan is arguably the biggest sporting superstar America has ever seen. This incredible docuseries tells the story of the iconic Jordan and his Chicago Bulls as they trounced all before them throughout the 90s, climaxing with their “last dance,” the 1997/98 NBA season, which would be their sixth championship in seven years.
Take Us Home: Leeds United – Amazon Prime
Since their relegation from the English Premier League in 2004, Leeds United have known nothing but heartbreak, even falling down to the third tier of English football in the almost two decades since. But, there is hope on the horizon, in the form of an iconic Argentinian, “El Loco” Marcelo Bielsa.
Another Amazon Prime spectacular follows the unbelievable highs and catastrophic lows of Bielsa’s first season in charge at Elland Road.
F1: Drive To Survive – Netflix
As we mentioned earlier, perhaps no sports docuseries in recent years has been as successful in the US as Netflix’s. Drive To Survive has been criticized by Formula 1’s more hardcore fans, claiming that the show creates fake rivalries between drivers. That shouldn’t put you off, however.
This show follows the mega-money circus that is Formula 1 on an epic season-long world tour, covering five continents and over 20 countries. With superstars such as Lewis Hamilton at the wheel, you won’t want to miss this one.
